A standardized image compression mechanism developed by the Joint Photographic Experts Group (JPEG). It’s designed for compressing either full-color or grayscale photographic images, often for use on the Web. JPG is a “lossy” instead of a lossless codec, meaning that the decompressed image is not quite of the same quality as the original image. However, it can reduce an image’s file size by as much as 96%.
